I had an idea a while back as a gag encounter.The party comes across a treasure chest only to find it's a huge mouth. The mimic only then wakes up, and embarrassed about the whole situation, scuttles off.

Paintings are fun. Especially an abstract painting in a room full of portraits, or a duplicated portrait since mimic have no sense of art per se. Gives the players a chance to notice something wrong and get into trouble by trying to figure out the meaning of it.
>>49033518House hunters are large relatives of mimics. They have lost some of the latter’s camouflage versatility, but they have gained the ability to live above ground.House hunters form hard shells that look like stone, wood, or thatch, lending the appearance of a building. Young house hunters look like smaller structures such as outhouses and sheds, adults are the size of cottages and small houses, while ancient creatures are larger still, with elaborate shells that can resemble inns, temples, or ruined towers. All three sizes of this monster can produce dim, flickering light (bioluminescence), resembling candle or lantern light, at any body opening, and they can imitate domestic noises (muffled voices, clucking hens, the tolling of a temple bell, etc.)http://www.lomion.de/cmm/mimihohu.php

>>49032561The warrior who was never disarmed. The mimic takes the form of a mechanical facscimile and then disguises itself as a warforged, using its adhesive to prevent enemies from ever relieving it of its weapons. Should they succeed on it (and it encourages tales of its prowess as a fencer) it simply latches on and grapples foes with the same adhesive and natural weapons of its kind. Secretly, unbeknown to the warrior mimic, it has a secret admirer in the form of the armor mimic it is wearing which is very embarassed about the whole situation and unsure how to broach the subject, but has been content to snack on the bloodsplatter.

Sometimes my friends want to do little roleplay things but without fooling with stats. Extremely short simple games where roleplay and being creative are the main goals. Roll a d20 for everything, high is good and low is bad kind of simple. Anyway playing such a game with a friend my character woke up in a dark room with no memories. He found a mimic egg (I was hoping it would hatch regardless if it turn out good or bad) and just kept on going. After a ton of stupid (in the good funny way) bullshit my character end up eating parts of goblins hoping that my friend will treat it as a healing item. Turn out my character was able to absorb them and even get a name change each time I did it. I went all out absorbing everything I could at that point and the game went full on stupid fun. It was getting late so we kinda just stop. It was only later I asked the guy was my character a mimic as that would actually make sense with all of the stupid, hell at one point I just quit bleeding from a deadly wound just because my friend didn't want my character to die just yet. It turn out he wasn't, all of that was just part of the stupid. It would had made an interesting story though in my mind if he was a mimic thinking he was an adventurer and by proxy have a ton of neat powers.

Swallow half of TIKAL in one go in an attempt to make your mind too alien a place for it to survive in.Just not giving a shit.
>>49040492But thanks to the cruel and varying experience that is life I don't find any of those things disgusting or even remarkable at this point.
>>49040492But that's the thing - because it's a mimic by its nature, during its first stages the idea is innocuous enough that you probably won't give it too much attention. It's just... there. Eventually you start to think of it more and more and by the time it starts to reveal its true nature, you're already having hard time NOT thinking about it. The only method to even identify it as a mimic at early stages are:>1) Meet someone else who things of the same thing and connect the dots>But how would you know if you're not just on the same wavelength? Would you risk sharing the details, knowing that if you ARE infected, you're effectively passing it on?>2) Know that a certain idea or concept is a mimic in advance>Which means the it's already too late; if you're aware of the idea - you've already become its host.
So your adventuring party gets a contract from a local shop keeper. He wants the party to make a supply delivery to a nearby dungeon. He says he wants the goods distributed evenly amongst a number of specified containers inside the dungeon. He warns the party that he has an index of the goods to be delivered, and that they should not disturb any of the other containers in the dungeon.the merchant sells lightly used adventuring equipment .
>>49040589but what if he is actually a mimic, mimicing human bean?

>>49040941Your granpappy didn't wade hip deep in nazi viscera while banging jap whores just so you could puss-out on a cakewalk, sonny jim.
>>49040980That was my idea originally. If one knows he is infected, you can destroy the being by either substantially dumbing yourself down (in D&D, for example, repeatedly subjecting yourself to Feeblemind or just by forgoing all mental efforts and drinking your brain into an intellectual suicide), which would starve the "creature" eventually; or by simulating brain death/actually dying (if resurrection is allowed) i.e. effectively going to 0 Int and Wis. This would kill it immediately...and maybe yourself as well.
>>49040941Well, not quite. First, it's not a manga, it's just OC donut steel that has couple (dozen) images across the boorus.Second, it's not explicitly guro, it's more of a cutesy stuff with some grim / gruesome implications. You'll see more viscera in any average shonen.The girl has supernatural regeneration and masochistic streak, go figure...
>>49041065So its like a kid friendly version of Mai-Chan's Daily Life?
>>49041090These are rad. This particular one is more like a land-dwelling Angler Fish rather than a mimic. Although I guess conceptually Angler Fish IS a mimic.
>>49041093Nudity is still frequent so I wouldn't call it exactly kid-friendly. But in some wider sense of the phrase, yes.
>>49041129Well lets be honest here. Kids are gonna see nudity somewhere. Best they learn now and in a nice happy go-lucky setting than some crude porn. Plus, now they get to be that cool kid in the class that knows way more than other kids do about adult stuff like swearing or regret.
Ideally, you want to drop the mimic on the paranoid player of the party. Get them riled up so they're always considering the possibility of mimics lurking nearby. And then don't. Either wait for them to develop a false sense of security, or the rest of the party to set 'Cry Wolf' on the paranoid player, and then let it loose once more.Also, trickster mimics that shuffle the arrangement of rooms or relocate themselves when no one is around just to fuck with people.
>>49041173Fair point, but I'd still rather not have the hypothetical child introduced through a piece of work which labels individual parts of female anatomy as choice cuts.
I'm writing a dungeon in the astral plane with subjective directional gravity and filling it with mimics. Stuff looks like it's just objects, but they're all mimics and the entire Room of objects falls on people I'm also making black puddings the immature form of both mimics and doppelgängers,
>>49041275It's educational!Tell me, how many people do YOU know that can list all the primal cuts? If they were in a survival situation would they know which organs to discard and which to keep or would they waste all the nutrients on a "safe bet" gamble?We're saving lives and make better people and the younger we teach them these skills the better it'll stick in their impressionable and tasty little brains.

>>49041062Oh god you reminded me of the time I discovered Half-Life barnacles D:
>>49032561A mimic that took a rope shape, and is hanging from side to side of a chasm. (he waits for adventurers to try to use the 'rope' to cross, and he plunges them down to their doom/weaken them a lot)A hint for the party to recognize the mimic, is that the rope isn't properly tied to the ends, but looks like more like they are wrapped around a pole/tree/whatever, and despite this the rope feels tight and safe.Attempting to tie the rope, if done fast enough will immobilize the mimic, if not it'll revert to his true form, and defend himself, possibly attempting to run away due his ruse being found out.
>>49043181The prequel sucked dick because executives were idiots
>>490409272004 called, it wants its meme back.On the serious note though, not everything needs to be statted. From my experience, the worst games of CoC are the ones where the investigators treat the monsters as something killable and tangible. The main selling point of the memic should be exactly that - how difficult it is to identify and fight before it's too late. Weapons will not help you against it. Even sharing your predicament in too much detail to enlist help is dangerous. You must use your remaining wit to fight it, at a great risk to oneself. To make it less of a death sentence, the incubation period for the memic to become apparent must be long enough - thus if you actually do figure it out early, you have time to fight it.The tricky question is, how sentient must this thing be beyond longing for self-propagation? Because if it is sentient, it will fight back once discovered...
>>49036369>>49040927>>49043415A Memitic infection goes through 6 stages, as described below.>stage 1: contractionThe host's mind successfully accepted the memic; at this point, it is little more than an unusually pervasive ear-worm, a catchy song or interesting puzzle that fills their mind when they're not thinking, or is vaguely in the background. Very few memics are diagnosed at this stage>stage 2: incubationThe memic begins to expand in the host's mind, slowly turning more and more of their consciousness to think about it. The host will find themselves tending to "slide" towards thinking about the memic in times of low mental exertion, and may become frequently distracted by it during repetitive tasks. Some memics are diagnosed at this stage, but not many.>stage 3: subversionThe memic has taken over nearly 15% of the host's mental capacity by this point, and the host will quickly begin thinking about the memic unless heavily focusing on something else. It is at this stage that the host also begins spreading the memic, and also when most memics are diagnosed.>stage 4: dominationThe memic has taken over nearly 33% of the host's mental capacity, and has become sapient in its own right. If the host is aware of the memic, and has not managed to starve it before this stage, the memic will actively disrupt their thoughts. Sleep is filled with dreams and nightmares in which the host and memic fight for control of the mind, and it is an uncommon occurrence that hosts will defeat their memic in the subconcious.>stage 5: consolidationThe memic controls 75% of the host's mental capacity, and sets itself to spreading itself as much as possible. What little remains of the host's ego is used to disuse the memic, as well as thinking about it. It is impossible for the host to combat the memic on their own at this point.(cont)
>>49043709>stage 6: preservationThe memic controls 90%+ of the hosts mental capacity, and has reached a level of intelligence that allows it to become aware of its own mortality. In a desperate and futile bid to preserve its own existence, the memic shuts down all of the host's stimuli. By this point the host is utterly incapable of taking care of itself, and the memic sets all of the remaining mental capacity to thought.In perspective to the memic and what little remains of the host's ego, a subjective eternity passes before the host's body finally dies. To the host's ego, it is an eternity of being almost nothing, without thought beyond that of the memic.
>>49043332So I can get anal AND a blowjob at the same time?! Sign me the fuck up
>>49043709>>49043750What would an origin point, patient zero, of such an entity be? Maybe an ingenious thought produced out of malice or in a moment of utter despair has a potential, if its creator had some residual power, to host a tiny spark of reason and evolve into memic. Or it has to be artificially engineered with evil intent.
>>49043817>What would an origin point, patient zero, of such an entity be?
>>49043800Are you thinking the creature's real poophole disguised as mouth or real mouth disguised as poophole?
>>49043817I'm not sure, perhaps an entirely natural thought in a susceptible mind.What does happen, however, is that once the memic has become sapient, it actively designs its "offspring" based on the knowledge gleaned by its host. These are often custom tailored intellectual problems, paradoxes, jokes, catchy songs or rhymes, or even a statement.Not all minds are susceptible to all memics, and it will often be that the more intelligent memics (those between stage 4 and 5) will reproduce many variants and strains.
>>49043841Is... Is that Patient Zero of the term "brony?"
>>49043885>>49043817> an ingenious thought produced out of malice or in a moment of utter despairSounds like it fits to me. If you look at this entire brony shit - it seems to fit quite well within this thread's discussion of memics. Uncannily so
>>49032561So I did something very evil as a DM once regarding mimics, or rather a parasitic variant similar to >>49032693.See one of my players had this thing, where his character had an amulet he never took off. He always wore it around his neck, because it was given to him by his bellowed who died in a goblin attack years ago.So they're adventuring, exploring a dungeon, and they come across a giant gargoyle, and it's made very clear to them that this looks like a mighty foe. Luckily, it's not hostile.It stays there as a statue, but they can hear it talk to them, and explains that it was tasked with guarding a passage up ahead but it's not entirely fond of those it was tasked with, so it's willing to let them past if they give him something valuable. Something personal.The PCs offer a few items, he keeps asking about the items and then denies them, saying they are not personal enough. He wants something they'll miss.Eventually, one of the PCs mentions the amulet, and the gargoyle is very interested.Naturally the character goes on a rant declaring he'll never take it off! Never! Its his only memento of his beloved!Gargoyle grumbles and then tells them to come back the next day and bring something worth his time.Party's kind of beat up, they decide they'll do just that, if for nothing else, so they can take the party head on.During the night, I roll spot checks for the night guard as usual (I do this even when nothing's out there, so they don't know something's out there). They don't suspect anything.Next day they return ready to fight, but the gargoyle explains he changed his mind, and will let them pass if they promise to return him something from deeper in.PCs still think he's a pretty tough fight, so they accept.>it took them many months in-game to realize that during that fateful night of healing up, a small mimic came to camp, carefully slipped off the amulet and replaced it with itself.>The big gargoyle wasn't actually a gargoyle but the mom

>>49036795>mimics are not magical creatures but a race of man that use cabinets, chests, trunks, and doors as armor
A gentleman who recently inherited an out-of-the-way property and all of its contents from his reclusive wizard uncle is looking for adventurers to help clean it out. The late mage was a hoarder in the extreme, collecting not only magical items and strange curiosities from around the globe, but also mundane junk such as broken wagon wheels and ten-foot poles, to the point where even the open spaces of his manor and tower have become labyrinthine hallways formed of junk. Adventurers will have to contend with, among other things, the wizard's malfunctioning magical servitors, voracious vermin who have taken to nesting in the debris, the semi-failed results of the wizard's attempt to breed miniaturized "fancy mimics", and possibly the wizard himself in undead form.
Mimic Pot>The traveler finds an iron pot lying in the bushes. It's not rusty or damaged, so he takes it. That night, he catches a rabbit and tosses it into the pot with some veggies. Just as the stew starts looking ready to eat, the rim of the pot closes shut and the pot starts gurgling. After an hour, the rim opens back up, but the pot is empty. The furious traveler hurls the magic pot into the bushes and goes to bed hungry.

>>49045031Why not? While it's little it'll cuddle your hand if you reach inside it for something.
>>49044664And then when it's older it'll be coffin sized so you and your beloved pet mimic can be buried together.

>>49046013>not a GIFthe eyes actually spinning makes it.
>>49046214Send this thread everywhere you can. Tell your friends about this memic.
Here's something you should all know.Mimics are intelligent, as in sapient intelligence.They can also speak.

>>49046240Thread's up. I feel a lot better for putting it on there, I must admit. Knowing it'll always be there for people to read, and find out more about.You will upvote it, won't you?
>>49046357Of course. After all, it's just a harmless discussion for fun, what could go wrong?
>>49046343So it starts. The Gingerwood clan stands ready
>>49046343>Facebook and TwitterThat's a great way to poison it. It should be kept safe until it's strong enough to withstand the cancer.Like a tiny dragon.

>>49046253What's weird is that they go from a human-normal Int 10 in 3.5, to Int 19-26 geniuses in 4th edition, to Int 5 dumbasses in 5th edition.
>>49046428Haha, dumb 5 Int creatures. What harm could there be from such a dumb creature? Even if mimics were real, there would be nothing to fear from them. In fact, mimics, despite their stupidity, are very sedentary creatures and only attack if provoked. Whenever they do attack, they back off fast once the assailant is scared away. They also help you dispose of the old junk you keep in the attic in all those old boxes and wardrobes. Some of them even take useful new forms and help you spread fun new memes and pull some pranks. Mimics are your friends.

I've always wanted to play an inverted 'party-of-one' character - a doppelganger martial, wearing a mimic cleric as armor, a cloaker rogue 'round their neck, wielding an intelligent sword spellcaster.

Really. You can trust me. They also have the most distinct, memorable and terrifying mimics for a while, so they'll naturally be a thing in mimic threads.

Mimic Mini-Boss masquerading as a princess in a tower. Pleading for your help in a flimsy high voice. Open the door and it tries to bite you. The Mimic is both the princess and the tower.Even better if the princess part of the Mimic ceases its poor female voice and starts cussing at you in its normal deep, Scottish or Russian accent.

Mimic town! Where a Grove of wild mimics have grown for centuries. Everything is a mimic, houses to horses, everything but the chest in the town squareIt's empty
>>49050372Tell me about the chest
>>49032561The whole point of mimics is that in order to foresee them you need to treat everything like its might be a mimic. The oldschool dungeon is a place where only the paranoid survive.
>>49050476>The dungeon is a mimic>It contains gelatinous cubes and more mimics>You're actually a foreign body and get treated as such
>>49047325>They also have the most distinct, memorable and terrifying mimics for a whileSo.. i'm not the only one that takes my axe to EVERY CHEST before opening it?
>>49050407Why does it wear the lock?
>>49048415if you really want to fuck with them make it kind of like the spider sisters from Dark Souls, have the second one be sick and weak and rather than bursting out all badass kind of crawls around patheticly feeling for it's "sister" who was the big strong one, letting out a strange sad howl it if finds the body, leave hints around that the one was taking care of the other, feeding it and such. Could fuck with a party that aren't pure murderhobos
>>49050507Kind of reminds me of the whale dungeon in Ocarina of Time.
>>49049926That cover got me thinking, are there any rpgs or homebrews focused on the party playing non-humanoid monsters as adventurers?
>>49032561A legitimate treasure chest with fake tentacles and teeth glued onto it.>"WAIT, don't go near it. It's a mimic">"Best just avoid it then"
>>49032561Cursed treasure chest where every time someone tries to open it their mind is drawn into the chest and any minds already contained within the chest are placed into the now vacant body.
>>49043841Yes./co/ is the breeding ground for some weird stuff.
>>49045031>tfw want to write a story of a novice adventurer and a child mimic growing up together>tfw schoolfuck my life
>>49051735AD&D 2E had a sourcebook, the name of which I don't recall, for playing as a party of dragons.D&D 3.0 had Savage Species.D&D 3.5 had Libris Mortis.I think Fantasy Craft's selling point was "D&D but play as anything," but I can't really guarantee anything there.
>>49040344>mfw kill is kiss
>>49050587You don't need to axe every chest. If you look very closely, you can see their teeth.
>>49046343It's the most interesting thread I've read in years!
>>49053952Superhot is the most innovative shooter I've played in years!
You guys do know the memic already exists as an Abyssal Intruder in nWoD Mage, right? Intruders: Invaders from the Abyss details it pretty specifically.
>>49054000I do not know what is this "Superhot" you speak of, but it sounds like it is similar to our very interesting discussion on memics. Care to join us?(nice trips btw)
>>49032997It would smell like one
>>49045704A complete dickbag that goes off and dies in a fire with all my shit inside of him on a dog night.
>>49053789Huh, really? I just waited to see which chests breathed.
>>49055860You can also discern a mimic's true nature by looking at the chain.
>>49056285Or you could just hit every chest with your hardest attack
>>49052781>>tfw schoolDo it in your off time?
>>49036369Oh hey, it's The King in Yellow.
>>49047689Animated object clothes are one thing, but mimic biosuits get a little too /d/
>>49057254College kids aren't adept enough at adulting to do life AND class. It's just not physically possibly for them yet.
>>49057696Is it a mimic if its actually just normal bio-suit that the actual humanoid mimic subconciously attributed a personality to to fend off PTSD and traumatic memories?
>>49057790If it can change appearance it's a mimic, if it can only be a specific set it's more like a cloaker. And as much fun as humanoid mimic ideas are, I recall them being unable to take human form, even though it's their dream to become human. Upon attempting to be properly human instead of just a mannequin or the like, they realize how WRONG they are, how they can never be happy, and go mad. Still, I had a mimic NPC in one game that used magic instead of her natural shifting to become human for a short time each day. She loved to hide and pop out to surprise people.
>>49050587The trick is the chain. Examine a chest you know to be a mimic, then a chest you know to be safe. But no, no you are not.
>>49057767I wrote most of my fics while I was in school, it's not that hard anon
>>49048400>mimic has learned reverse psychology
>>49057880I thought we were talking about kill la kill.Ryuko's the humanoid mimic, her biosuit is just a biosuit with literally the same leanings as the white one right down to attacking the first living thing it sees and symbioting, and its personality is entirely made up by ryuko as no one else not even the mother of the life-threads sees it as anything beyond a neat biosuit.
>>49058048I never said it was hard. Just that most college kids view it as such.
The mimics I've used so far in my campaign:Classic mimic, Larger treasure chest with classic mimic inside, classic mimic inside two successively larger treasure chests, door-mimic, trash pile-mimic, tent-mimic, oasis-mimic, mummy-mimic (mummic), mummy-mimic inside sarcophagus-mimic, lyre bird-mimic ("everyone knows lyre birds are accomplished mimics..."), wrecked wagon-mimic, easily-pickpocketted mark-mimic, trapdoor-mimic, fingerbox-mimic (meme-ic)
>>49058279I'd say Ryuko is more of an Aberrant bloodline Bloodrager myself, but really only posted that image because art of most "living clothes" biosuits is not fit for blue boards.
>>49037352Steve, stop with the memes.
>>49058425>art of most "living clothes" biosuits is not fit for blue boardsIt would be if the NSFW rule was less retarded
>>49058052Don't be silly. They only have 5 Int.
>>49032561Helmet MimicNests in treasure hoards and pretends to be magical, when put on teeth sink in and it eats the eyes. If you leave it on it gives you some blindsense, since it wants to stay alive too.Lantern MimicGreat for campaigns with well lit dungeons, it hangs out on the walls waiting for someone to come by. It then spits out a slick of burning oil and consumes the bodily fluids of the victims.Potion/bottle MimicBane of drunkards. When put against a mouth it shoots out it's own mouth and latches on to the throat of the drinker and attempts to choke out the poor guy.Carpet MimicDigs a deep pit and bends over itself to lay over the pit (Normally long like a flatworm, but bend to look round or square). Unbends to let victims fall in the pit, some varieties like to use acid or spikes in addition to the fall.
>>49040882Or better yet: The key to the chest is the mimic.
>Find BBEG's hidden treasure chamber>It's practically overflowing with loot>When you enter the door closes>GM tells you to roll perception>It ain't for traps
>>49036906I read a story kind of like this, I think it was a greentext. Except their mage used mass animate object on all the gold he found.
>>49059633I'm running a dwarven wizard right now that's slowly creating a pile of gold coin constructs at a surprisingly reasonable cost.
>>49041375I feel like this could be a Monty Python sketch. >Save me Adventurer, this mimic has be trapped!>No, you are the mimic>No it's trapped me>I can see where you're merged with it!She gestures to the chest and it closes its lid>Save me adventurer! The mimic is eating me!>No it's not, I just saw you tell it to close itself!>No you didn't>Yes I did! Your hand is open and the knife is still stuck to it!>No, no you didn't
>>49032733That's like an anti-rape device that you can put in your snatch: http://www.snopes.com/photos/crime/graphics/rapecondom.jpg
>>490464285 int, that's totally bullshit, mimics are smart creatures, we can even use keyboards.
Cute Mimic for the purpose of magical realming my vore fetish
>>49036755you don't happen to have more of that, do you? For... uhm... reasons?
I kind of want to see the old style "Steve Irwin finds a D&D creature", but he keeps on opening old chests and they aren't a mimic, they're just an old chest. Maybe that part would be stretching the joke to far, I don't know.
>>49058279Ryuko is still human, she's just half mimic? I guess. Nui is a humanoid mimic if anything.
>>49060624Do mimics even have a butthole for him to jam his thumb in?
>>49040927I thought I was safe from The Game.I thought I couldn't lose anymore.Fuck you, Anon. Fuck you for bringing this back.
>>49058279Did her suit talk to that one guy who hates clothes?
>>49044228Shit, I used to know that guy. I wonder if he feels shame everytime he sees that picture, knowing that he helped birth what was the most annoying part of... What was this? Sometime between 2011 and 2013, right?
>>49048300After the first one, every chest I came across, I threw my dagger at it first to see if it would react. If it did, then I would kill it with extreme prejudice.
>>49061645Eventually by sheer evolutionary pressure you'd be left only with those steely nerved motherfucker mimics with nothing left to lose. You've only made the race collectively more dangerous!>>49056710I had a player once who started getting really paranoid like that about mimics even though I'd never used them. Guy just read about them and was sure I'd do it to him eventually. So instead I told him there were a bunch of offensive splash potions in the chest he just hit as hard as he could. Oh did we have a laugh after burying his character sheet in the back yard.
>>49036865The ring bites you. Roll for damage >hands player a sphere with 1 written on it a few times
>>49032561Fun as a mimic.
>>49032693Couldn't you just stun or paralyze it with spells and then snip it off? Also you never know what will set it off. If you're hit with a spell that otherwise transfers damage to it, it could just freak out and snip your finger off, so really it is a bigger liability than just taking up a magic ring slot.
>>49052781Please do; it would make for excellent /tg/ storytime
